Battleground God

When I'm not diddling with dildos I take silly quizzes like this one. I did quite well answering questions about religious beliefs and atheism. I suppose I might as well admit it - I'm an atheist. So there.



Battleground Analysis

Congratulations!

You have been awarded the TPM medal of distinction! This is our second highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground.

The fact that you progressed through this activity being hit only once and biting no bullets suggests that your beliefs about God are well thought out and almost entirely internally consistent.

The direct hit you suffered occurred because one set of your answers implied a logical contradiction. At the bottom of this page, we have reproduced the analysis of your direct hit. You would have bitten bullets had you responded in ways that required that you held views that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable. However, this did not occur which means that despite the direct hit you qualify for our second highest award. A good achievement!

Comparative Statistics

487491 people have completed this activity to date.

You suffered 1 direct hit and bit zero bullets.

This compares with the average player of this activity to date who takes 1.38 hits and bites 1.10 bullets.

45.86% of the people who have completed this activity, like you, took very little damage and were awarded the TPM Medal of Distinction.

7.94% of the people who have completed this activity emerged unscathed with the TPM Medal of Honour.

Analysis of your Direct Hit

Direct Hit 1

You answered True to questions 6 and 13.

These answers generated the following response:

You stated earlier that evolutionary theory is essentially true. However, you have now claimed that it is foolish to believe in God without certain, irrevocable proof that she exists. The problem is that there is no certain proof that evolutionary theory is true - even though there is overwhelming evidence that it is true. So it seems that you require certain, irrevocable proof for God's existence, but accept evolutionary theory without certain proof. So You've got a choice: (a) Bite a bullet and claim that a higher standard of proof is required for belief in God than for belief in evolution. (b) Take a hit, conceding that there is a contradiction in your responses.

You chose to take the direct hit.

I have to say, this quiz was disappointing. It seems to assume that any belief in God is to believe that he applies equally to everyone. Why can't I believe in my personal relationship with God, and allow you to be an athiest, and be happy with that? I prefer it that way, that my God may be different than what you know of God, and we can all be happy and talk about dildos.

Not sure about the quiz, but I respect a woman that openly says she diddles with dildos.
